Cosmo Jarvis - Sure As Hell Not Jesus
------------------------------
Key of B with Capo 2, ear-transcribed on ukulele by Neil Killer.
------------------------------
A lot of the guitar chords in this song are hard to decipher; I always found
something to tweak in these chords after I took a break and came back. The
chord after Bm in the chorus is hard to hear, but it sounds like either an E
or an A. I went with E because it fits better with the A at the end of the
chorus and also follows the pattern of the solo towards the end. The bridge has
sort of a partial key change, and it's *very* difficult to hear the chords
clearly, but the progression I came up with sounds pretty much perfect when I
play it together with the song.
------------------------------
The song is played with a Capo 2, as seen in the "rehearsal" video on YouTube.
If you're not using a capo, hit the "Up 2 Half Steps" button. I like playing
it in the key of C (hit "Up 3 Half Steps") since it sounds best like that on
my ukulele.

[Capo 2]

VERSE 1:
DHere I sit
BmIf I didn't need nobody, I'd thank God for it
E A (G# A)There'd be nothing that'd stop me getting on with it
DIt'd be me and my brain
Bm EAnd my pain, and my shame
DI guess I do
BmThis carpark's only got one space and it's for you
E A (G# A)Alone can show an ugly face, so pull me through
DTo where I won't need a light
BmTo see at night
E (D)Cos I'll be alright
CHORUS:
E Bm EYou're sure as hell not Jesus, but you're saving me
Bm E Bm EThank you very much for putting faith in me
Bm E Bm EReminding me a light was once so great to be
Bm E A (Amaj7)I'm glad I made a friend that doesn't pray for me
VERSE 2:
DHere I wait
BmFor something bad and saddening to draw my way
E A (G# A)I fight to give it everything and lose I may
DBut I still got you somewhere
BmIt's just upstairs
EMaybe I care
DGuess I am
BmNo big and strong Goliath, I'm a wandering man
E A (G# A)And sometimes I get tired and I'm glad a hand
DComes and slaps me and then
BmIt goes again
E (D)I guess you're my friend
CHORUS:
E Bm EYou're sure as hell not Jesus, but you're saving me
Bm E Bm EThank you very much for putting faith in me
Bm E Bm EReminding me a light was once so great to be
Bm E A (Amaj7)I'm glad I made a friend that doesn't pray for me
BRIDGE:
BmSo thanks, my little angel, (thank you too!)
DFor watching over me
G D Em BmShe says she's gonna break my nose
AIf I don't behave next week
SOLO: Bm E - Bm E - Bm E - Bm E CHORUS REPRISE:
E BmYou're sure as hell not Jesus, but you're saving me

Bm E A (Amaj7)Glad I made a friend that doesn't pray for me
